I’m Dr. Claire Conlon and I am a Senior Clinical Psychologist with over 10 years of experience from both the UK and Ireland. I fell in love with psychology whilst working in Great Ormond Street Hospital over 10 years ago and have not looked back since. I studied psychology as an Undergraduate, before completing a Masters in Psychology and obtaining a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology.
When providing support for parents and children, I draw on attachment theory, developmental psychology, infant mental health, mindful parenting, behavioural support, and cognitive behavioural therapy. I also provide much-needed support for parents around coping with being a parent and the added pressure of additional stress, trauma or parenting a child with physical, medical, neurobiological or additional needs.
